I GOT YOUR BACK!

I was basically born on stage

My mother used to "force" the three of us  to perform in her, quite popular, theatre production that was entertaining all our neighbourhood

I LOVED THE LOVE and attention I would get from the crowd

In fact I was OBSESSED

That love kept feeding my wonderful ego for years to come

Bono once said

"us celebrities must have been loved so much at one stage in our life that we keep on desperately looking for that love and we can only find it  in our crowd!"

I knew how to get attention, 

I LOVED THAT "LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME" ERA OF MY LIFE

FAST FORWARD TO MANY YEARS LATER...

I BECAME A TEACHER BY ACCIDENT

I remember thinking 

"there is no way on earth I can become a teacher"

First of all

I never had a good relationship with

ANY TEACHER I CAME ACROSS

I was

too rebellious, too free, too provocative

too determined to reach the impossible 

too much in connection with my voice

to be listening to anyone telling me what to do!

Oh well, that's how I percieved teachers back then :0

Little did I know that my

"LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME ERA" was about to be replaced by a new me

Slowly I started to  understood that

TEACHING WAS NOT PATRONIZING

WAS NOT DICTATING

WAS NOT MAKING YOU FEEL BAD SO I COULD FEEL GOOD

BUT

TEACHING WAS SHARING WITH LOVE

FROM YOUR HEART

EMPOWERING, GIVING, SEE THE LIGHT IN PEOPLE'S  EYES 

WHEN THEY CAN ACHIEVE WHAT THEY NEVER THOUGHT THEY COULD

While teaching I suddenly  shifted from

“LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME! LOOK HOW GOOD I AM “

to

“I SEE YOU! I KNOW YOU!

I KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH!

I AM HERE FOR YOU!

I GOT YOUR BACK SISTER”

I discovered that teaching was a job that required

a deep love for the person you are sharing your knowledge with

for women in my case

that are probably going through the same path,

the same insecurities that we have all been through

and your knowledge but mainly your genuine love for them can make a difference in their life

And so I BECAME  A DANCE TEACHER

And so much more...

I FULFILLED MY CALL IN LIFE...TO GIVE BACK AND SHARE WITH ALL OF MY STUDENTS THE MOST WONDERFUL FORCE THAT COMES THROUGH MUSIC AND DANCE

AND THAT MY LOVE...THAT IS WHAT MAKES LIFE WORTH LIVING

AS THER IS NO JOY IN LIFE IF YOU DON'T HAVE WONDERFUL PEOPLE TO SHARE IT WITH :)

“There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through your teaching into action and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique.

And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and be lost. The world will not have it.

It is not your business to determine how good it is

Not how it compares with other expressions

It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly, to share your knowledge and  to keep the channel open”
